Set Ablaze:

At the burnt shards in the pile I gaze
Burnt, and broke…
A dead token,
A token of my love for you…
A heart that would’ve always been true…
But you didn’t want my love,
It just didn’t suit you.
So I knew what I had to do…
To rid myself of the pain,
With only freedom to gain
I ripped my broken heart out…
Figuring the pain would be gone without a doubt,
But gone it was not,
And it hurt so badly…
I threw it into the fire,
Where the flames grew hot…
Set my heart ablaze,
Burning away memories of us,
Burning away memories of all our days together,
Burning away my love for you…
Destroying the heart that would’ve been true,
Set ablaze creating a heart that is new…
One that will have no love for you.

From this poem I hope that people see that even if their heart is broken, that it wont be that way forever. Don't give up on love <3
Dedicated to Eli.
